He said being a Guinness World Record holder has changed his life.
“I’ve been able to go to different countries and see all different kinds of cultures and hang out with good people and have good food,” he said. “It’s very fun and I looked at the books as a kid, so to be in them is just an honor — it’s huge.”
“The average tongue length is just over three inches: 7.9 cm (3.11 in) for women and 8.5 cm (3.34 in) for men. Mine is 10.1 cm (3.97 in),” said Nick.
“When I first broke the record, I wanted to use my tongue for something, and I saw a video of a man in India painting with his tongue,” he added.
Feeling inspired, Nick decided to use his tongue to create some tasteful art before attempting to smash his latest record.
As per the record book, before this feat, Nick attempted to break the record for the most tongue-to-nose touches in one minute.
The record to beat was 281, but Nick unfortunately fell short by 35, clocking in with a total of 246 very tiring tongue-to-nose touches.
